Leadership: The Fast Way to Gain Leadership

Leadership: The Fast Way to Gain Leadership,John C Maxwell,

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~Proverbs 1:7

Wisdom can be a leader’s best friend, especially in times of decision. Suppose you find yourself in a large committee meeting in which a crucial decision must be made. The committee reaches an impasse and everything stops. Who will become the most influential person in that room? Answer: the one with the wisdom to draw a conclusion that not only works, but which receives the blessing of that committee.

Proverbs 1 describes wisdom as a woman crying out in the streets. What a beautiful picture! Wisdom does not hide herself, but shouts publicly! We must go out and find her and build a friendship with her: What can we learn about decision making from Proverbs?

  1. The foundation for every decision is to honor and revere God.
  2. We must build off of our heritage and conscience: What values are we to embrace?
  3. We must avoid the counsel of the ungodly.
  4. We must pursue wisdom: What are the facts? What are the options?
  5. We must move toward inward peace.
